Description

If supersymmetry is discovered at the LHC, the first task will be to determine the mass spectrum, and to this end Susy Cascade decays would prove extremely useful. However, in order to prove that the model really is supersymmetry, one must measure not only the masses of the new states, but their spins as well. In this talk I will discuss the determination of these superpartner spins using cascade decays and the measured masses as inputs.
